The estimated number of registered NGOs in Israel is 25,000, with a 7% growth rate every year. 10% of the Israeli workforce is employed in the third sector (approx. 369,000 jobs). However, there exists a gap between the professional growth & development of these organizations and their HR structures. In response to this need, Mitam was established. Mitam provides a variety of professional, high quality human resource services to non-profits in a sector in Israel that typically lacks the knowledge and financial capacity to hire full-time HR professionals, thus strengthening management and as a result, the effectiveness of the organizations.

The goal of the IVN-Mitam partnership is to create systematic sustainable change within the Israeli third sector by promoting professionalism and excellence in the management of human resources.
